and the government is getting violent. the united states is getting involved. they're threatening to take control of the entire country. the militants' move prompted france to take action over the weekend. they put boots on the ground and went all in, bombing rebel training camps and other targets. so what will the united states do? a pentagon official told me this afternoon that the u.s. will participate in mali, but, and i want to make sure i put quotes around this, it's still deciding what that looks like. when we went to the mali border last summer, i saw first hand how dangerous the situation is. today, we spoke to some of our sources on the ground, including the military commander of the al qaeda's linked group. he told us that the militants are, in his words, excited and would welcome u.s. troops on the ground. he also said the french bombs have killed civilians and that france is signing a death warrant for french people around the world, opening the gates of hell. omar said the militants will fight to the end and this will be a long war, more dangerous than afghanistan or iraq. we also s

the united states has had drones over that plant for much of the time. so at this hour this is what we do know, that the algerian government has concluded its operations against the terrorists that the incident is ending. some north african news outlets have claimed that at least 35 captives were killed in the algerian military rescue attacks the "wall street journal" is reporting algerian government sources putting the number of casualties to be ten or perhaps 11. this is what reuters news service is reporting. thirty hostages killed when the algerian forces stormed the plant. two of them japanese, to -- a french national. the nationalities of the rest as well as those who escaped remain unclear at this hour, and those rescued. fox news, however, confirms that at least two americans are among those who escaped and are on their way out of algeria heading to london. still, as many as seven americans are reportedly missing at this hour, as i said, all of this is very fluid, and many of these numbers are going to change as we learn more, hopefully far more during the course of this hour. mea

in sales; correct? >> right, but it's off pa tent now in the united states. >> what do you do to replace that, fill that void in the pipeline sh >> well, the nature of our business is that you either innovate or you become extinct, and so for us, it's really about the new drugs coming along to take its place. for example, we have a franchise in diabetes now. the leading drug, and it's a fabulous drug, controls blood sugar, but, again, it's differentiated from the prior generic drug because it does not cause weight gain, important to those on the medicine for a long time. >> one the diseases that affects our nation and costs so much the the cost of everything, people wonder about the drug cost structure. how do bring it down just a bit. does the affordable health care act do that in a way that you can also live with it? >> well, we had to give additional reacts to make the affordable care act work, and that's a tradeoff that's worth it. now more americans have access to really good health coverage so we'll take that tradeoff any day. >> you are part of the a panel here called smart regula
of questions already are coming from the united states about the algerian government's tactics in the operation that could have put the hostages in jeopardy. now, we also want to let you know that right now, there's a chartered flight en route of bp employees from algeria. it is headed towards london to gatwick airport. now, that could be landing at any moment. we don't yet know if the passengers are any of the freed hostages or if there are americans on board, but as we get that information, we're going to share that with you. the brother of an irish national who escaped from captivity had a harrowing story. he spoke to cnn today and described what happened to his brother. >> yeah, but just found out recently that he'd been mered to sleep with duct tape over his mouth and his hands tied and then we find out how he got free and five out of the compound or to a different part of the compound, and there were five jeeps and the algerian army had bombeded the jeeps and out of the five jeeps, the bomb had wiped out four of them. and they had obviously lost their lives, but lucky enough for my brothe

with the debt ceiling. i hope he doesn't choose to use it by leveraging the futh, faith and cret of the e united states to gain political points but if he chooses to use the debt ceiling as a way to do entitlement reform and long-term spending cuts, that's a way, probably in february he can get that done. that might bring people along. >> congressman, i want to point out to the people watching you were one of the members of coress during your tenure, you return one million dollars unspent office funds back to the treasury. i don't know many member of congress to do that i forget you being a florida state grad. mostst of my friends are gators. >> sorry to hear about that. adam: all seriousness, congress right now, as you depart has a reputation that is at the bottom. i could use all kinds of negative adjectives to describe it. i don't need to tell you. how does congress get the respect it needs to gove back after this craziness which is still not played out, and who gets the blame for this? >> well, understand, that congress is made up of people who have won election in 435 districts. the 50 stat
fire damage to the battery of the auxiliary power unit. remember, the auxiliary power unit is what is used to provide power to an airplane when it is parked on the tarmac, not while it's in flight so the battery unit, severe fire kagge there, and it's pretty clear, scott and maria, that we are going to see more airlines, if they haven't already, they are going to start checking their wiring on the battery unit. i just spoke with the folks out of ana in japan. they have a number of dreamliners, checked theirs overnight at the urging of the ministry of transportation in j.i just talked with united airlines. it has checked the battery power wiring on all of its dreamliners, all six of them. the "wall street journal" reports that one of them did not have the wiring done properly, so that's clearly where the investigation is headed regarding those dreamliners and the fire we saw yesterday in boston. back to you. >> thanks. certainly will continue watching that story. boeing a dreadful couple of days as a result of this and traded already more than two times its average daily volume as a

you screw it up buddy. it was about unit. the left and center are much better at national unity than the right. the right sees a national tragedy like this far off in bengha benghazi, not in new york city, at a very exposed position which could have happened no matter how many troops he would there. we don't blame it on everybody even know it was new york right into the heart land. i think there's a difference in how people react. i think the left was much more nationalistic. how is that for a statement? thank you ne. ra and ron reagan. it's funny it's is frick yin true. >>> john boehner sass the president was to annihilate the gop. maybe if republicans weren't in a perpetual war with african-americans, latinos, women, and young people politically at least they wouldn't to worry about being annihilated. >>> also the pentagon officially lifted the ban on women in combat today. in reality women have already been in combat for some time, certainly exposed to enemy fire as tammy duckworth can attest to. >>> everyone agrees now is the best time to two decades to push for gun safety laws.
the debt ceiling or credit rating of the united states, that's a non-issue. you're right. that's the thing we should have learned back in august 2011. people don't pay attention to the credit rating agencies anymore, especially when it comes to sovereignty debt. >> if they cut enough time it starts to impact what the government has to pay for their debt. >> look at every institutional investor -- >> if it goes low enough some treasuries couldn't buy those because the rating wasn't high enough for them. >> if you look at every single institutional investor, they define that a u.s. treasury security is a separate investment independent of its credit rating. >> because it implies a aaa credit rating that it doblt even have right now. >> interest rates that the united states pay is what the united states want to charge it. >> why rate? >> i agree. >> it's pointless. >> they shouldn't. >> can we look at this another way for a minute? let's look at this another way. let's talk about this country being able to pay its long-term bills. forget what a credit agent says about the u.s. balance sheet.
where he says i'm the united states senator, i took an oath to our constitution, not to israel. well, who was he saying that to? >> that's an incredible slap, eliot. >> yeah. >> i read with great interest your rendition of the story. that was an usa operation working very, very well with an israeli leader and israeli general or something like that which he closed down. but this thing what you just said now, can you repeat that? because nobody talks like that nowadays. nobody talks like that. >> right. this was an interview he did a couple of years ago where he said -- this is the one where he used the term jewish lobby. but he also said, you know, i'm a united states senator, i'm not an israeli senator and i took an oath to pour constitution. one of the problems if the senate says okay to this is what it's saying okay to really is a new level of anti-jewish rhetoric. this is something we had driven out of public life. you can disagree about policy with respect to israel, but that's a challenge of dual loyalty. >> and from what i gather, senators like chuck schumer and menendez and ot
and president obama put out a psa and i want to remind you of this. >> since our founding the united states is a nation that respects all favorites and reject those that denigrate the beliefs of other, there's no justification for this type of senseless violence, none. >> let me state very clearly, and i hope it is obvious, that the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. we absolutely reject its contents and message. america's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nati nation. senator, that's eight days after the attack, 14 days after the attack, the president himself is still blaming the video. all the evidence to the contrary from the president of libya, to our own state department watching in real-time. we knew that wasn't true. >> without question, without question, there was a political coverup. without question-- >> why, why do you think that is? >> well, i asked one question. i got one question he in towards the end of my period and i said, were we involved with selling, buying or procuring or transferring arms to tur

abouted day which the united states will no longer be a superpower but so-called first among equals. they project the date is somewhere around 2030. your thoughts and reckoning on the date and whether or not you agree with that, if you will, not decline, ascension of other powers? >> right. i certainly think that since the financial crisis back in 2007 and 2008, there has been a tendency to write us down, if you will. you think many of those assessments have been unduly pessimistic. i think even down right wrong at times. we're still the most powerful economy in the world. there is still have most powerful military. demographic i canly we're quite a healthy nation. we are the third most populous nation in the world and we will be even out to 2050. so the notion that somehow we're going to be eclipsed from the scene, i think is completely wrong. there is some truth to the statement that the economic and demographic center of gravity in the world is shifting towards asia. but it is shifting towards asia away from europe if you will. and not away from the united states. and i think tha

on constitutional grounds based on the 14th amendment to the constitution which says that the debt of the united states shall be respected. so their argument would be in that case that it is simply unconstitutional to have a debt ceiling at all. and they say that congress -- the president rather would be able to do that without invoking congress or meeting congress in any way. >> section 4, 14th amendment, validity of the public debt of the united states shall not be questioned. that's the exact wording. doesn't say increased. it says it cannot be questioned. but then law, constitutional law scholars are saying to everybody, it is constitutional to have the congress make the debt changes. they are allowed to do that. the 14th amendment has nothing to do with that. in fact most of the 14th amendment, due process, equal protection and citizenship clause is about giving african-americans the right to vote, live and prosper in the united states. >> right. that's right. and clearly if the president was to do what they call the constitutional option that the democrats are raising here as a possibility

there are an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants here in the united states. >> yes, they broke the rules. they crossed the border illegally. >> some crossed the border illegally. they have broken the rules. >> and the overwhelming majority of these individuals aren't looking for any trouble. they're contributing members of the community. they're looking out for their families. >> the overwhelming majority of these folks are just trying to earn a living and provide for their families. >> businesses that are trying to do the right thing, that are hiring people legally, paying a decent wage, following the rules, they're the ones who suffer. they've got to compete against companies that are breaking the rules. >> this puts companies who follow the rules and americans who rightly demand the minimum wage or overtime or just a safe place to work, it puts those businesses at a disadvantage. >> first, i believe we need to stay focused on enforcement. that means continuing to strengthen security at our borders. >> first, we know the government has a threshold responsibility to secure our borders.

are wondering if this path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants in the united states is actually a fast-track umc. what more can we have chris stirewalt,. >> welcome as always, it's in the details. that's what counts. in 2,702,000 page bill. it just tells me that that is a very convenient pretext. gerri: we will have a lot of debate on us. taking a look at this list, you have to verify everything that happens. enforce new hiring procedures, a farm worker program and better tracking of defense. will the president accept this? he is announcing his plan tomorrow, or will he insist on his own list of priorities when it comes to immigration? >> what we will see is right now this is, as you pointed out, critics on the right are saying amnesty. which of course, it is amnesty. we are talking by the way, about a way to not get these folks to be illegal anymore. >> the definition of amnesty is a part and without any penalty. these folks will have to go through a background check. let's think of the crime. they crossed the border without documents. they haven't destroyed property, they haven't hur
of the united states. but you do know that the federal reserve has been quite instrumental here in pushing rates to historically low levels, flooding the economy with money, and chasing people into risk assets with the idea that that would create a sense of wealth, and therefore spending, and that is to a degree working. and the other side is that the american economy is tremendously resilient. so we are on a path to recovery. there are some head winds that are enduring. we're growing about half what we would like to grow at, but we are in a recovery, and i expect that 2013 will look a lot like 2012, 2% kind of growth which is not terrible, not great, but good enough. >> it feels like we're running on a treadmill. we're in the same exact spot and we keep running and running and getting nowhere. so jim, my question -- or peter, i should say, let's bring in peter here. my question for you is if you look at the vix, that fear gauge, last week it fell to its lowest level in five and a half years, what does that mean to you? what does that mean to investors and to the economy going forward? >> that's
years and a federal prosecutor as united states attorney for four and a half years. the best laws on the books are dead letter unless enforced, so we need more resources. absolutely right. both at the state and federal level to enforce existing laws and if that executive action or order involves more resources or more vigorous enforcement of existing laws, improving that national database, the national enforcement criminal background system, all to the better. >> so, you're saying the executive order, that the president could do, could be you know, putting more people, more resources, more money into existing laws. he can do that via executive order? >> well, he may need an appropriation from congress for major amounts of money, but remember, we're not talking about huge amounts of funding. the national database appropriation last year was $5 million. that's million. not billion. $5 million, which is a drop in the bucket for the connecticut state budget, not to mention the national budget. but here's the main thing. i proposed a bill that would involve better enforcement of existi
to our economy, far worse than any economic period seen in the history of the united states. in my judgment if the federal government becomes insolvent or goes into bankruptcy because the debt has accumulated to such an extent that it overwhelmed our ability to pay. in that context, then, i'm willing to raise the debt ceiling if one or two things happens. first, the constitutional amendment must pass the united states congress and sent to the people. >> that could happen. >> certainly may not happen if we don't try, the second is, substantial spending cuts. >> according to john boehner that is not going to happen either. >> a sincere effort of trying to address the problem, the trillion dollar a year deficits are unsustainable. >> we get that from republicans, i'm trying to get at what has happened within the republican congress in the house such that the day after the inauguration, the republican leadership is saying let's not raise the debt ceiling? let's pretend we simply do not have one. and do that for a period of months. is that -- is that thing going to get the votes? that i
contribute to only about 4% of violence in the united states. so all the focus on mentally ill people as the source of danger and violence is really a diversion and a distraction from the much larger problem in this country. which is that we have really homicide by firearms as a huge epidemic. 30,000 people every year die by firearms in the united states. 17,000 by the suicide, and 13,000 by homicide. the vast majority of people who die by homicide are not mentally ill. the vast majority are not mentally ill people. >> gail trotter, i want to listen to the exchange that you had with senator whitehouse today. >> ms. trotter, quick question, sarah mckinly, in her home, used the assault weapon that would not have been banned. >> i don't know what type she used. >> well, trust me, it was, and that would not have been banned under the statute. so i think it proves the point with ordinary firearms, not 100-magazine peculiar types of artifacts, people are quite capable of defending themselves. >> gail trotter, the hearing is about legislation that would ban assault weapons and high-capacity
and the president of the united stat plans on the politics of confrontation and conflict with republicans. and not conciliation with consensus. neil: what you make about the markets? being concerned are anxious, we are beginning to see some futures market trading. i don't want to take too much away from asian trading. there are avariety of factors. if the president would've done something that would spook them, they would've sold off, but instead they have sold off on a incredible mark advance. what do you make of their take on what the president is doing? >> i think they are responding to what the fed has been doing. there has been some good news. i will say that you mentioned medicare and medicaid and social security. specific programs in the speech. that tells me that he's not going in there to chop these things. the republicans are not going to give him any more tax increases. i don't think we're going to get a big deal with the president saying that he do this with medicare and medicaid and social security. and republicans coming aboard with tax hikes. neil: i think you are right. we
with senator mitch mcconnell. if the president of the united states wants to talk about tax increases, look it up in the history books because it's not coming during 1913th session of the united states congress. >> how significant are the spending cuts that you're talking about? what would it take to get to you raise the debt ceiling? >> two things that would have to occur, either one of which would cause me to raise the debt ceiling, one is a balanced budget constitutional amendment phased in over a period of time that would force washington to deal with this issue in a serious way. and the alternative, there would have to be spending cuts, real spending cuts, first year in excess of $100 billion. >> 100 billion. okay. constitutional amendment in a long time. jim newsel, you called the fiscal cliff deal to this point a fiasco. what had your high expectations for what's to come on the spending and the debt limit that they have to deal with in the next couple of months? >> i don't have very high expectations. >> i didn't think so. >> i mean, i think at this point in time we're seeing history
